I've been a sifu on demand student for four plus years. Why am I still here? Because I have actually engaged the material and see how that it is effective and leads to real skill and understanding. I don't mean to sound condescending to anyone that decides to end their time here. However, if you have completed stage one and two but you haven't engaged the ongoing training then you are truly missing out. The training only deepens and widens your sense of your body and it's mechanism.
For those ongoing students who want to fill their drive time with pearls of wisdom, I have enabled the raw class archives for your enjoyment and edification. :) When you login to Plex, you will see a library called 'Raw Class Audio'. The server will kindly remember where you left off so you won't miss a moment and no searching.
So, one of things that has frustrated me through the last couple years of my training is becoming more aware that my breath/breathing was not able to reach my perineum. Sure, the was some slight sensation but mostly I ended up with increased pressure and agitation my solar plexus. As much I can, I've been following Sifu's instructions and I've recently been aware of some new feelings. When I relax in a new way and use the relaxed belly to make room for the breath as I inhale, I feel a stretch in my back just below the kidneys.
